    Taylor wins easily by submission (between 2-3 mins into round 1)

    I won't be watching but I'd say Taylor will win easily - Baghdad can't wrestle. Taylor via submission either late 1st round or early in the 2nd, RNC.

    Was originally gonna pick JT to win by submission, but the commercials leading up to this episode have made it look like JT is going to get (T)KO'd. But you know those commercials can be misleading sometimes, I just dunno.

    What happens if someone who already has Plat wins the contest?

    Crazy story with Jesse Taylor. I remember how insane that was when it happened. Funny looking back how he was the Jon Jones of the group. Destroying dudes by day, partying it up at night. Fucking crazy. I would be so hungover and no way I could train if I partied to the point of pissing myself the night before. I would take a xanax and smoke a Bowl and go back to sleep.

    Saw Taylor announced he'll be the next guest on TUF Talk.

    if he winds up winning .. i'll be pissed. **instead of announcing who'll be on TUF talk halfway though the show, why not just say "TUF Talk with tonights winner"

    we'll see though

    I've seen times where they announced one of the guys fighting was going to be on TUF talk but they ended up losing

    First episode I'm wathing of this season because I finally remembered before it was too late. Did they ever say why James Krause who is on a winning streak in the UFC is in the show? Seems really random.

    I actually like a lot of these guys. Joe Stevenson back in the day was one of my favorite fighters.

    I saw this article where Krause talks about being back on the show, seems it was something that he wanted to do

    Because this season was open to any previous TUF contestant who can make 170. Prize is 10k per win, 5k per finish and 250k to the winner.

    Well last episode I really wanted to say I thought Tom was going to get the upset and submit Eddie but didn't feel confident in that feeling. So this time I will make the oddball pick, I think Mehdi is going to beat JT by either decision or late (T)KO

    Cool, thanks for the info. Still seems kind of weird you'd think they were only going for guys who were cut/retired/whatever instead of a guy who is doing well enough in the UFC already.

    Jesse looks tired. Maybe Baghdad can capitalize but that was a work

    Personally I think they should use TUF as a real tournament instead of a talent recruitment tool. There are so many other ways to get fighters these days that it makes more sense as a contenders tournament or just a incentive one.

    Yeah that'd be cool. Just speaking specifically for this season where most of these guys were cut/have been cut for a while and seem to be looking for a last chance in the UFC. Krause doesn't fit that at all
